Megan, our server tutored us on the proper way to eat crawfish. Our Lowboil was off the charts delicious thanks to her. Super nice and great on- the-spot service. Highly recommend.

The shrimp and crab were delicious. The Crab Shack has tons of low country Georgia shore charm. We love cats, so they were a welcome bonus. Ana, our waitress, was prompt, and she was very accommodating when we wished to move to another table.More

Description
The Crab Shack isn't just a restaurant, it's a destination! We seat more than 700 guests and offer both indoor and outdoor dining options. Both dining rooms and our outdoor dining deck offer picturesque views of Chimney Creek. Both the young and young-at-heart will enjoy our interactive, educational "Gator Lagoon" which is home to 78 baby alligators; our aviary which is home to more than a dozen rescued exotic birds, and our "Gift Shack". The Crab Shack offers traditional Low Country fare, including fresh streamed and boiled seafood and slow-cooked BBQ. We also have a kid's menu available with burgers, hot dogs, and pizza. The Crab Shack is and always has been a family owned business, and recently began shipping our entrees in ready-to-be-cooked kits through LoCo To Go. Stop by and experience all we have to offer for yourself!
